Friday Round-Up: Mountainfilm Festival Inspiration

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. We kicked off the month with 5 Point Film Festival, and we’re counting down the days to Mountainfilm in Telluride, so this month we’re devoting it to… you guessed it: film!

TRUCK FARM: Forty-eight minutes may seem awfully long for a film about a truck farm. After all, how much can a filmmaker say–that is interesting–about a truck that has been converted to grow plants in the back of it? More…
